UNIBEN Announce Resumption Date.
Following the approval of the Edo state government for schools in the state to resume academic activities on February 1, the University of Benin (UNIBEN) Management has asked her students to return to campus the same day.
Schools across the country were shut down for months owing to the coronavirus pandemic coupled with the recently suspended nine-month-old ASUU strike which disrupted academic activities.
Meanwhile, the University management insists that the earlier announced Academic Calendar remains unchanged as on-line and physical classes will fully commence immediately.
The 2019/2020 academic session first semester is expected to run from February 1 until the 1st of April, 2021, while the second semester is billed to commence on April 5, 2021.
UNIBEN under the leadership of Prof. Lilian Salami as vice-chancellor says it is committed to ensuring the provision of quality education to students “without compromising on our collective safety.”
